🛍 Product Information：
Other Names：Bean Sprouts | Mung Bean Sprouts
Product Description：It mainly refers to mung bean sprouts and soybean sprouts, which are white, tender and refreshing, with strong sprouts, beautiful appearance and rich nutrition. They have been traditional popular vegetables in my country since ancient times.
Choose non-polluting organic seeds for cultivation. Usually a catty of beans outside can produce 14 catties of bean sprouts. Here, a catty of organic beans can only grow 4 to 5 catties of bean sprouts. The difference is three times as much! It’s not that the technology is relatively poor, but the bean sprouts cultivated in a natural way have the same yield. Because no growth agents and herbicides are used, the water content of the sprouts is low. If you fry the bean sprouts, you can see the difference. Vegetables will not ooze water like ordinary sprouts, and even have to add water.
Bean sprouts contain more vitamin C. Interestingly, soybeans and black beans, which are originally protein foods, do not contain vitamin C, but they are produced after germination. The vitamin A content of bean sprouts is dozens of times higher than that of dried beans after sprouting. Many studies have also pointed out that after beans undergo the germination process, the content of phytochemicals such as total phenolic compounds and flavonoids will increase significantly, which has the effect of anti-oxidation and scavenging free radicals.

Put some sprouts in the roasted meat and fried shredded pork, which can increase the umami.
Notes："Instant sprouts" add chemical additives to hurt the liver and kidneys!
In order to speed up the growth of bean sprouts, some vegetable farmers add chemical additives such as thickening agent or ethylene during the growth of bean sprouts.
Among them, bean sprout thickening agent is a kind of transparent water agent, which can make the stem of bean sprouts obviously thicker and develop horizontally; while ethylene will suppress the growth of roots and leaves, making the stem grow fatter.
Adding growth hormone affects liver and kidney function
In addition, the use of growth hormone can shorten the harvest time of bean sprouts from 6 to 7 days to only 3 to 4 days, and can make the bean sprouts thicker, grow and grow faster.
Although growth hormone makes bean sprouts look white and fat, if people eat too much, it may affect liver and kidney functions, causing liver cirrhosis and chronic kidney disease.
If the sprouts are imported from the mainland of China, there are cases of investigation and punishment of poisonous sprout factories using chemical agents all over China. In these cases, the additives of sprouts can be divided into several categories, including harmful additives commonly known as "AB powder" Or other growth hormones, preservatives such as bleaching powder, fresh-keeping powder, and antibiotics.
Experts revealed that the main components of AB powder are 6-benzyl adenine and gibberellin, which can make sprouts grow to 7 cm in 3 days, and taste delicious, but AB powder can cause premature development in children, physiological changes in women, and the elderly Osteoporosis, etc., may even cause cancer. In addition, bleaching powder makes the sprouts bright in color, but ingestion can cause damage to the oropharynx, esophagus, and gastric mucosa. Long-term consumption may cause various cancers.
Raw sprouts are not recommended
With the promotion of raw food, the population of raw sprouts is increasing day by day. Not only many cancer patients regard sprouts as a life-saving "high-energy" food, but they are also often found in ordinary salads and sandwiches. But to the surprise of ordinary people, healthy sprouts actually hide the suspicion of food poisoning. In 1998, the number of food poisoning cases caused by sprouts increased day by day, and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) began to repeatedly remind the public of the dangers of eating raw sprouts. The Food and Drug Administration recommends that children, the elderly and those with weak immunity should be prohibited from eating raw sprouts. Cases of food poisoning from eating sprouts are still increasing, and the Food and Drug Administration has expanded the scope of the warning: "It is recommended that sprouts should not be eaten raw."
Seeds to be used as sprouts should be treated differently from ordinary seeds. Cleaning, safe packaging and germination processes should all be handled with care.
